for a change. wink wink.
Remember this project?
My Ruellia project.
I really wanted something along the fence line to soften things up.
Easy to grow
Cheap, preferably free
Opportunistic (AKA invasive)
They reach almost to the top of the fence!
I did not pay for ONE single plant.
Ruellia is quite the spreader so most people are looking to reign it in or get rid of it all-together (good luck with that. HAR.)
It's exactly what I need though and it looks just lovely. The purple flowers really stand out against my dark stained wood trim.
I've also got it going all along the other side of my property (I live on a large corner lot.)
I'm so happy!

There's also the, um, tire project.
It's not for everyone, that's for sure, but it's gone over quite well in my hood with lots of passer-bys giving me the shout out.
It looks pretty cool in real life.
That's a looooong right-of-way that was full of weeds and crap and weeds and crap.
Now it looks, well, more intentional.
It's still kinda weird and wabi-sabi, but it's very urban fun and landfill friendly.
La, La, La.
Always more to do, ya know.
Gardening never ends.
Just beware, my pretties.
